Musical Artist Moby Claims CIA Asked Him to Spread Word on Trump and Russia

A world-renowned electronic music DJ and performer revealed to a Louisville radio station that CIA agents requested his help in bringing attention to President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia.


Musical artist Moby discussed in a new interview what he learned about Donald Trump from CIA sources who requested the musician use his large social media following to alert Americans to the dangers posed by the commander in chief.

The DJ explained to WFPK radio how CIA sources told him, “look, you have more of a social media following than any of us do, can you please post some of these things just in a way that … sort of puts it out there.”

“Yeah, so years of touring and spending time in DC and New York, I’ve managed to make a few friends in the intelligence community. And I guess this is about a year ago, we were having dinner and they were really concerned — partially based, not to go too much into the weeds — this Fusion GPS report on Trump essentially being run as a Russian agent. And these are some active and former CIA agents who … they’re truly concerned,” Moby recounted.

“They were like, ‘This is the Manchurian Candidate, like [Putin] has a Russian agent as the President of the United States,’” he continued.

“It’s really disturbing and it’s going to get quite a lot darker,” Moby predicted. “Like the depths of the Trump family in business and their involvement with organized crime, sponsored terrorism, Russian oligarchs, it’s really dark.”

“I guess we should all, like, fasten our seat belts and hold on,” he warned.
